| The outside world is fraught with peril, but also with joy
Seconda is gripped with acute agoraphobia and has not left home in nine months. Her clingy parents encouraged the situation to begin with, yet with Seconda approaching middle age they realize that they held on to her too tight. Unfortunately, they can't raise her twice. When mom dies and dad disappears, Seconda is left to face her own demons. Attempting to connect to the outside world is fraught with peril, but also eased by joy.

Despite some unsettling circumstances, Love Me Tender carries a heartwarming message that we have more in common with others than we initially believe. I loved how Seconda turned her weaknesses into strengths. I loved what the film has to say about mental health. We are all a little batty and the unfortunate circumstances of others demands compassion not harsh judgments. While the delivery of the film theme leaves something to be desired in terms of acting and depth, the omissions may be forgiven considering the film's limited resources. Seen at the Toronto international film festival.
